Rajnath Singh’s remarks came a few days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed opposition parties’ plan to form a ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) as a “failed idea,” saying they want a weaker government at the Centre. “The parties first fight with each other. But whenever they get a chance, they come together to grab power,” he had said.
Referring to the Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) alliance in Karnataka, PM Modi said, “Before elections, they misled the people by attacking each other. And when it was time to form government, they did not waste any time to come together.” Attacking the grand alliance even more, he said, “When there is a strong government at the Centre, then whole country is benefited. In case of a weaker Centre, only the leaders of an alliance get benefited.”
As far as the #MeToo campaign is concerned, the movement gathered pace when actor Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar and choreographer Ganesh Acharya of sexually harassing her during a shoot on the sets of Horn Ok Please. Soon after, many women from the media and film industry came out accusing some of the known names of sexual harassment.
